Beat Seasonal Allergies with Herbal and Natural Remedies

Seasonal allergies can be frustrating and distressing for the sufferer.
But there are herbal and natural alternatives that can make life a lot easier by reducing the symptoms or even helping the body heal itself.
Seasonal spring allergies often bring on symptoms of a stuffy or runny nose, itchy watering eyes and frequent sneezing. These symptoms are usually referred to as hay fever or allergic rhinitis, the professional term.
Sometimes there is a scratchy or sore throat, throat clearing and cough from post nasal drip.
Anti-histamines are the drugs most commonly used to treat allergic rhinitis to bring down the histamine load the body is producing.
These drugs might relieve the symptoms temporarily but if you really want to get to the root of the problem, then it’s important to consider herbal and natural remedies to relieve seasonal allergies.
Two herbs that are particularly useful are dandelion and stinging nettle.
That’s because these herbs have a number of benefits that cause powerful healing effects on the body.
They are packed with vitamins and minerals but in addition to that dandelion and stinging nettle have cleansing effects that help reduce the toxic load on the body.
When you reduce the toxic load, it also reduces the histamine effect which triggers allergies.
Springtime, in Chinese medicine, is the season of the ‘liver’ which makes it a cleansing time of year to prepare the body for the busy summer season.
Using supplements like Vitamin C and probiotics such as acidophilus also make a difference in helping the body heal itself.
Homeopathic remedies can also make a big difference in reducing seasonal allergies.
Knowing about natural solutions is part of the equation – the other part is knowing how to use herbs and natural remedies to help the body heal itself.
